|Usage and history|
Originally designed by the Sith of the Mecrosa Order, their quality was on par with that of Jedi lightsabers. Each lightfoil was a work of art, lightweight and balanced, it was wielded with one hand, as its petite and elegantly designed handles attested. They were best suited for use with one-hand in the Form II: Makashi style.
After the Cleansing of the Nine Houses, with the Sith gone, the lightfoil began to be made and used by non-Force sensitives, becoming popular among certain nobles of the Tapani sector, especially those that called themselves "saber rakes". Post-Cleansing Lightfoils were weaker than authentic lightsabers due to the poor quality focusing crystals used in their manufacture and the relatively low level of craftsmanship compared to Jedi artisans. However, the knockoff lightfoils apparently did not require any connection to the Force to create, and were fully usable by non-Force sensitives.
